Creating opportunities for young people in partnership with the construction industry


There are many businesses and organisations involved in building young people’s self-confidence and professional skills through training and employment in the construction industry.

We couldn’t do what we do without their involvement, their dedication and willingness to offer young people life-changing opportunities.

Celebrating achievement

Every young person is unique, as are their life-changing journeys to success in construction. We want to share some of these remarkable journeys with you, celebrating individuals’ success and spotlighting the organisations who have supported them.
